The best time to visit India is between late October (the end of the monsoon season) and mid-March. However Rajasthan can be chilly in December and January and those inviting hotel pools are unheated. April and May can be very hot and humid, with daytime highs of more than 100F/40C regularly recorded on the northern plains, though these are good months to visit the Himalayan foothills and the hill stations of Shimla and Darjeeling. High summer is pleasant in Kashmir and Ladakh.
India, country that occupies the greater part of South Asia. It is a constitutional republic consisting of 29 states, each with a substantial degree of control over its own affairs; 6 less fully empowered union territories; and the Delhi national capital territory, which includes New Delhi, India’s capital. With roughly one-sixth of the world’s total population, India is the second most-populous country, after China.
India packs a lot into a massive space, and you'll never have time to see it all on one trip. Think about what interests you, what you like doing and how much time you have, and tailor your trip accordingly. Be realistic about how much you can fit in. Rather than trying to see the whole country, you may get more out of your trip if you concentrate on the south of the country, or on the north. However, internal flights are plentiful and inexpensive so you can hop from north to south if you want a taste of both worlds. The itineraries section at the front of Lonely Planet's guidebooks to India can be a great help, but here are some possible itineraries to get the ball rolling.
For our first trip to India we decided to hire the services of "Visit India Tours", undoubtedly our BEST decision! We visited the cities of Dehli, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Pushkar, Agra and Mumbai enjoying the best monuments, forts, palaces,... in each place. All our trip was arranged by Haroon (from transfers to guides, camels to elephants, hehe) so we had to worry about nothing at all and simply relax and enjoy the magic of India. I highly recommend this company to anyone willing to experience a great tour for an even greater price, and I we will definitely count with them in our next visit to India (and we will be back for sure!). Thank you so much for making our holidays an unforgettable experience!
Wr enjoyed a Golden Triangle Tour organised for us by Haroon from India Tribal Tours.
We assigned a pleasant driver, a good car and everything ran smoothly.
Haroon is very professional and cater to nearly every travel request within India - he booked trains and plane tickets for us and responded promtly to emails with questions. He tried his utmost to cater to our rather limited budget, too.
A good experience!
I happened upon Haroon by happy chance, and his gentleman demeanour and support was very much appreciated. He talked through many travel possibilities and helped me to organise all my travel plans, suggesting best routes for my short time here. Having been to Delhi rail station, I felt somewhat overwhelmed with organising where I was heading, but thanks to Haroon I have my agenda all in place and cannot wait to discover more of India!
I cannot recommend his support enough, and know that when I return to India, I shall definitely be organising all my plans through his services.
Visit India Tours.. did a wonderful job in planning our 28 days travel in India visiting north as well as some parts of southern India. Our time was perfectly divided between cities and all the hotels were of good standard. All the drivers we used during our trip were very friendly specially Raju. Would strongly recommend this company services.
I travelled through the cities of Rhajasthan, saw the Taj Mahal, rode camels through the desert of Jaisalmer, visited the worlds oldest city of Varanasi, ate the Indian street food of New Delhi, kayaked the backwaters of Alleppey Kerala, visited the temples of Hampi and the sawm on the beaches of Goa
